Create a .txt list of all contents in Control Panel > Programs and Features

How can I obtain a list of all contents in the Control Panel > Programs and Features window?
In a previous thread, an expert helped me use the DOS Command Prompt to create a .txt file listing all filenames in a given folder. The Cmd Prompt entry is as follows:
...>dir "C:\Users\UserName\Documents\FolderName" > "C:\Users\UserName\Documents\FolderName\ListFileName.txt"
Now, in preparing to reformat my hard drive, I want to create a list of all Programs and Features in the Control Panel. However, in this case, following the procedure described above results in the error:
"The system cannot find the path specified."
The directory pathway shown in the directory bar at the top of the Control Panel is as follows:
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features
Please note that I'd like the Programs and Features list to contain the contents of each of the displayed columns, ie:
• Installed On
